- Item # 2786055
- End Date
- Start Date
Italian fig very similar to the much desired Portuguese Black Madeira. This black fig has an intense sweet berry flavor and aftertaste. It is larger than the Black Madeira and ripens earlier. The I-258 is more suitable to cool growing conditions. It is also a much faster growing tree than the Black Madeira.

Bidding is open to the lower 48 states only. I do not ship to Hawaii, California or Alaska. NO international shipping. The trees are shipped in soil so know your states agricultural restrictions. More information on this variety can be found on the ourfigs forum or the figs4fun forum mobile website. I am DaveL on the forums
I will do my best to protect the tree during shipping, however, I recommend someone to be home for delivery or arrange with your post office to have your package held for a pickup at the post office. Please gradually introduce your tree to sun, wind or temperature changes. I deliver trees directly to my local PO to ship.
In an effort to control the spread FMV by various mites, I have treated my trees with neem oil spray as a fungicide and with the spinoza Monterey Garden Spray as a miticide. Both are recommended for organic gardening. However as a precaution, I recommend that you isolate all new trees and plants from your collection for a short period of time to insure no issues. It is not unusual for fig trees to exhibit mild FMV. This fig was growing from extra cuttings received Dec. 2018.
